Pancakes!




I don't need much of an excuse to eat pancakes, they are sooooo delicious!  I thought I would have to live without them when I was forced to give up gluten but with a little change of ingredients I can still indulge.

These are from the Honestly Healthy book which is full of things I can eat so is becoming a firm favourite.






So for those who want to indulge in yummy pancakes here is the recipe:

AMERICAN STYLE BUCKWHEAT PANCAKES

makes 6 - 8


70g (2 3/4oz/1/2 cup) buckwheat flour
70g (2 3/4oz/1/2 cup) rice flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp Himalayan pink salt
300 ml (1/2pt/scant 1 1/4 cups) Brown rice milk
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp sunflower oil, plus extra for greasing
1 tbsp rice syrup


Place the buckwheat flour, rice flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl and mix well.

Place the milk, lemon juice, sunflower oil and rice syrup in another bowl and mix well, then stir into the dry ingredients and mix gently until just combined, being careful not to overmix.

Wipe a frying pan lightly with oil and heat over a medium heat.  Place a poachette ring or pastry ring in the pan and ladle in 1 tbsp of the mixture.  (I found it best to oil the rings)   Cook until air bubbles start to appear on the surface of the pancake.  Do not turn until this point.  Remove the mould, turn the pancake and cook for about 1 minute on the other side, until set.  Repeat until all the mixture is used and cooked.


You can change the recipe to suit your own preferences.






Happy Pancake Day!

  2. I love pancakes and need no excuse to eat them but the cooking of them is always up to himself so I don't get them as often as I would like, but, I did convince him to cook them for me on Valentines day! We also make savoury pancakes with tuna.

  8. Oh my goodness! Excuse me while I just stop my mouth from watering. I love the idea of putting these in the cases to give a thicker pancake. I'll give these a go later, but I doubt anyone else in the house will get any :-)

  9. Hi Chickpea - I made some gluten free tonight too but with Doves Farm gluten free flour (3 oz plain white and 1 oz self raising) - they were a bit "thick" so I probably should have added a little more liquid but Mr C, who usually turns his nose up at the thought of gluten free, said they tasted alright, so I'll be making them again! Also, I think the thick mixture would lend itself to the little poaching tins - will have to hunt some down!
